Charbonnel Gilding Mix Gold Size
Lefranc & Bourgeois Charbonnel Gilding Mix Gold Size is a clear, traditional, natural oil-based size that is made in France.
LeFranc & Bourgeois Charbonnel has an international reputation of being the best oil size available, with experienced gilders demanding LeFranc for their most important projects.
It has superior levelling and resistance properties and consistent characteristics.
Oil sizes are ready to gild when you tap your knuckle against the surface without disturbing the size or it coming away with any residue. A soft hair brush is a must to produce a smooth even surface. Brushes are best cleaned with mineral spirits.
Porous surfaces should be sealed to create a smooth surface for gilding.
